it was amazing

I haven't finished it yet, but I am finding it incredibly hard to put down, despite having multiple other obligations for my reading time. Reading this book about a journey through health issues and food discoveries for some inexplicable reason is reminding of the very best kinds of travelogues, savory with spice and color, vibrant with dreams. I knew what an impact this book was having on me when I walked into a store today that had one of the spices she had recommended (smoked Spanish sweet paprika), and I started dancing around singing, "I'm in my happy place! I'm in my happy place!" And I smiled for a very long time afterwards. And I'm smiling every time I look at the packet of smoked paprika, or open the jar into which I decanted the packet purchased. ;) While the book presents itself as a book about being gluten-free, it is much more than that, and suitable for virtually any audience as long as they love food, good food, creative food. Wonderful!
